Since 2006, Artists’ Exchange has hosted the One Act Play Festival (OAPF) for the entertainment and enjoyment of the Cranston community. Short plays are submitted from local, regional, and national playwrights and then selected for performance by a panel of directors/artists. Casts feature community actors ranging in sex, age, and experience levels.
Now in its ninth year, the OAPF started in the intimate Black Box Theatre at Artists’ Exchange and has grown into the larger Theatre 82. Artists’ Exchange continues to bring quality, accessible, and affordable art and theatre to families, individuals, and groups in this traditional summer event.
WAVE I: July 25th - August 2nd
WAVE II: August 8th - 16th
Thank you to all the playwrights who submitted their work for consideration for this year's Festival! Our panel is currently reading and selecting the plays for performance. All selected plays for both Waves will be made and announced by May 1, 2014.
